Contractors at an impasse with their government customers turn to Anuj Vohra for creative solutions; decisive, actionable guidance; and effective advocacy.  

Anuj litigates on behalf of government contractors across industry sectors in a variety of forums, with extensive experience in bid protests before the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and the U.S. Government Accountability Office. He also assists clients with an array of issues related to contract formation (including subcontracts, teaming agreements, and other transaction agreements), regulatory compliance, internal and government-facing investigations, suspension and debarment, organizational conflicts of interest, and the Freedom of Information Act.

Prior to entering private practice, Anuj spent six years as a trial attorney in the U.S. Department of Justice’s Commercial Litigation Branch. At DOJ, he was a member of the Bid Protest Team—which handles the department’s most complex protests—and served as lead counsel in dozens of matters representing the United States in commercial disputes before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, the Court of Federal Claims, and the U.S. Court of International Trade.
